Zig-zag Table Runner

I came across a pattern that I thought would compliment my Rail Fence chair pads and placemats. There's minimal piecing to do but the resulting interconnected look of the pattern appears quite intricate. A simple gridline machine stitching and a narrow binding makes quick work of finishing the runner. It's a project that can easily be completed in an afternoon.
I like that kind of project!

Rail Fence chair pads and placemats

 For years, place mats and chair pads such as these were being churned out of my sewing room on a daily basis.  While local stores were the primary destination for them, I also sold many sets online through eBay. But the gradual but consistent climb in postage rates put an end to that! So now, while I still make these for craft sales and have one local outlet, these items are only made now and again. Browns and tans seem to be the most popular colour choice.
